Encrypting / Signing My Email!

I recently read an awesome blog by Michael White about how he encrypted/signed his email. Given all the news about security I figured it was a good time to consider doing this as well.

Log Insight: SSL Certificate Management

I just concluded a three part series on how to backup and restore Log Insight. I just realized that I missed how to backup and restore the SSL certificate on the Log Insight virtual appliance. I will address this oversight in this post and then update the previous posts.

As you know, Log Insight is primarily used through its HTML5 interface. By default, Log Insight ships with a unique SSL certificate per appliance.
